    Growing up in Singapore, Clara Tan grew up in a country whose government was extremely hostile toward non-cisgender people. Yet now, as a working actress in New York, she sees more bigotry in the American theatre industry toward people of Asian descent than toward those in the LGBTQ community.

    For this week's episode, Anthony spoke with Clara about moving to NYC to study at the American Musical & Dramatic Academy, industry discrimination toward Asian and trans people, how she was primarily a singer before Broadway made her aspire to be an actress, and more!
